We heard the rumors, but now it looks like it's for real.
PWInsider reports that Hulk Hogan began discussions with the WWE several weeks ago, and the promotion issued a confirmation: “We have had discussions with Terry Bollea (a.k.a Hulk Hogan) about how he can help others learn from his mistakes, however, he is not under any contract with WWE."
The "mistakes" mentioned in the statement refer to the Hulkster's sex tape—which brought down the gossip website Gawker—that included a viciously racist rant. The WWE cut all ties with the legend when the tape leaked in 2015.
The NY Post reports that Hogan—despite being removed from the WWE Hall of Fame—is also attending the WWE-related premiere of the HBO documentary Andre the Giant. He was interviewed for the doc and offered insights into their infamous WrestleMania 3 clash.
Long story short, the Hulkster is making a comeback, so best prepare yourselves.
